ATIS Prepares OSS/BSS Standards for IPTV

The ATIS Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council has developed requirements that address the specific impacts to operations and business support systems(OSS/BSS) as service providers introduce IPTV services.

The IPTV requirements released by the Council have three main components: the need for an OSS/BSS high level architecture standard; a standard for the ordering framework and Application Program Interfaces (APIs) necessary to support end-user orders for IPTV; and a directive to study the various aspects of Content Partner Management transactional activities and their interactions with OSS/BSS.

The requirements have been distributed to the ATIS Telecom Management and Operations Committee (TMOC), Ordering and Billing Forum (OBF), and IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF), with standards and supporting technical deliverables targeted for completion in early 2007.

�The ATIS CIO Council identified OSS and BSS issues for new IPTV services as one of the key challenges facing the IT departments of service providers,� said Susan Miller, president and CEO of ATIS. �The interactive nature of IPTV introduces new systems and function needs to traditional OSS and BSS models, from purchases through interactive advertising to content rating and parental control interfaces.�
